We stayed here one night pre River cruise and found it perfect. The location is right near the canals, canal tour boats, Hard Rock Cafe and places to eat. We had a small room, but for one night it's fine, breakfast was very good too. Many selections and varieties to choose from. Front desk checked our luggage when we arrived... More

Back in Amsterdam. Love the city, decided on a hotel in the vicinity of the main square. The hotel does score points in history and heritage,the rooms are however rather run down. Service albeit pleasant and courteous, I still ended up waiting 7 hours for my room despite the emails letting them know I would arrive early. Exhausting would sum... More

This is a superb hotel, ideally located near the Leidse Square (Leidseplein). We wouldn't stay anywhere else... the rooms are larger than most Amsterdam hotels, always beautifully presented. The staff (who now recognise us) are always so helpful and so friendly. Don't leave without having a drink.. maybe a cocktail.... in the Cafe Americain... say hello to MIchel, Roger, Killin,...

There's still enough funk in this cleaned up version of the old Hotel American to make it one of the more memorable places to stay - you just have to know where to look. I booked a junior suite and asked for a canal view. Initially, the room they gave us was very nice but there was nothing special about... More

I enjoyed this hotel very much. Our first experience in Amsterdam and everyone was helpful and friendly. We also ate dinner outside by the fountain and everything was perfect! The rooms are dated, but had everything we needed. The electric train went right through town and took you any where you needed to go. Great restaurants and a Starbucks within... More

Such an incredible location: Trams out the door. Walking distance to RijksMuseum. Many restaurants. I enjoyed the concierge service, the cleanliness and the bilingual staff who spoke excellent English. I liked having a glass of wine by the Fountain on a summer afternoon. I would stay here again. Room is small, view not great but worth every penny.

Rooms were little dull in interior but overall a good hotel to stay in. It has a fantastic location, and the hotel staff are very friendly and courteous. Room walls are way too thin, so have to be little soft.

A great location for me as I was able to walk to most of the museum attractions I had planned to see. There is also a canal boat stop right outside to take a tour or just get from one place to another. The hotel boasts a nice computer area and seating space. The rooms are very nice with WORKING...

This hotel is a very historic property. The location is perfect. You can reach it from the airport by bus for 5 Euro's and the bus drops you right in front of the hotel. There are many trams that stop right in-front of the hotel which makes it convenient to many of the historic sites, museums, parks, the zoo and... More

Great location. Helpful staff. Very comfy beds. But the light in the room is very dim.chose the rooms overlooking the chanel not the square. Room 309 was next to service room. Very noisy in the morning
